Ok, I just replaced my strings on my Peavey hp series. I kept the original strings. If I were to sell this guitar used on Ebay or something like that with the strings would it be worth more. My friend told it would but i think he is ful of it.


PS I may be in the wrong forum. sorry

thanks guys

C'mon man, strings are like 5 dollars. If they ain't strings made out of gold or somethin', they're not really gonna affect the price.

No ones going to care what strings are on it or come with it. If they get the guitar and don't like the strings on it, they will change them. But honestly no one will care, and if you raise the price and say it's because of the strings people are going to call you an idiot.

I dont think it would matter... I mean if you had an original Gibson LP with original strings it would probably be worth more... But with a modern guitar... Strings get changed when they get old... I wouldnt save them, but thats just me

Depends on the type of strings. Strings naturally get older and tend to wear over time just like everything else, so if it's the same type of string it shouldn't matter. If you've got, let's say, thick strings for metal put on a Telecaster, then that could affect the price a few bucks.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

and how exactly would a thicker guage string increase a guitar's value?

Like said above, unless the strings are some crazy expensive, exotic material, there would be no reason for the strings to alter the price.

Any strings more than a few months old are going to be completely shagged and will make the guitar seem worse. If you're selling a guitar you want it to be in the best condition possible, so that means clean it up and put new strings on.

It won't be worth any more with new strings, but a guitar with old strings is no use to anyone. Yes they can change them themselves, but you should really be selling it in a playable state and that means new strings.

I think itd only prove interesting if say a 60's Strat had the original strings. So no, you shouldn't keep your strings.

My friend took the strings off his and his brothers guitar to clean the guitars (his brother didn't know) and he put the same strings on the guitars and all 6 snapped on him for both guitars.. but its probably because he uses the same strings for 6 months at a time..
